Pedraza defeats LesPierre on points
Former world champion in two weight categories Jose Pedraza (27-3, 13 KOs) won by unanimous decision over Mikkel LesPierre (22-2-1, 10 KOs) in the main event of the evening in Las Vegas. After ten rounds, the judges scored it 100-88 and 99-89 twice.
During the battle, LesPierre was counted twice. The first time a 35-year-old boxer was on the floor after a series of punches in the fifth round, the second time - after the left hook in the final round. For Pedraza, it was a successful return to the ring after the defeat to Jose Zepeda last year.
